what we heard a lot all of yesterday. this pope is really connecting with so many people who have turned out to see him. a lot of folks we talked to tell me that they went to new york city, they tried to catch a glimpse of him in central park or by the u.n., but here on the ben franklin parkway, they've been able to get a better look at him. he's been more accessible perhaps. again, because not as many people turned up as expected. 1 million people expected to turn up for this mass on the final day of his trip here in the united states. we're live in center city, philadelphia, this morning. >> ray, thank you so much. it has been indeed. that festival of families was amazing last night. i didn't get to see the whole thing, but it was terrific. thank you so much, ray. >> let's take a look at the pope's busy schedule today. first thing this morning, he's going to meet with bishops. then a visit to curran-fromhold facility. then later today, mass for the conclusion of the world meeting

francis today as he says his final mass here in the u.s. beautiful weather in philadelphia. they thought they might have some rain. >> it really has been a mood setter. the weather has been a very integral part of this visit. it's allowed so many people the opportunity to come on out. one more day of great weather. let's talk about it and walk over to the weather wall, see what's happening outside. come on, let's go. at this hour, we see very quiet conditions. not a lot of people out, but we're glad you're with us. 57 degrees right now. it is chilly and even colder to the north and west. a nice wrap to the weekend. pat was mentioning they thought they might get some rain in philly. it has stayed to the south. that's great news. but we have a change brewing in our forecast. we are going to see more clouds roll in. then we're chanting rain, rain, don't go away. we need it, we want it, wnd it looks like we may have actually get some bdeore the week ju is done.

we'll see sunset roll in at northeast winds 5 to 10 miles per hour. temperatures pretty much in the 70s, upper 60s in some areas. out of sync. 73 degrees in high park. 71 in shelter island. now, keep in mind as we head to tonight, mostly cloudy skies late. comfortable conditions. winds out of the east 5 to 10. we have a rare occurrence under 64 degree temperatures. we are going to see both a super moon and lunar eclipse tonight. that combination is going to produce something called a blood moon. we haven't seen it since 1982. we won't see it again until 2033. best time to watch it, let's say between 10:00 and 11:00 tonight. our cameras will be trained on the sky. you'll see more about that through the day. as far as the seven-day forecast, check it out right now. again, after tonight, we see a chance of a shower increasing.
photography and set up several internet domains to showcase his work. >> i love the idea of having my own domain names. it's easy. it's inexpensive. it can be fun. >> he registered them with godaddy.com and has been happy with their services for years. months before he was set to renew, he got this letter from internet domain name services in jersey city about his site. >> they're saying, you know, you're going to lose it, you don't want to lose it, you want to continue it, you want to keep current. so, you know, here's our deal. >> the expiration date was still about four months away, so he questioned the notice. >> it just didn't make a whole lot of sense. didn't sound right. the prices, i thought, were kind of out of line. >> so he contacted his domain registrar, go daddy. turns out contact information for websites is available on public databases. so we reached out to internet domain name services about the notice they sent to richard. they admit it's a solicitation to transfer the domain name from
it's up to the consumer to decide. richard chose to stay with go daddy and advised them about the letter. >> once they confirmed that it wasn't them, i was thinking, you know, you guys need to know that there's a company out there trying to pull your clients, your customers away. >> when we asked internet domain name services about these solicitations sent to richard, they say the notices contain factual information about when the domain will expire and asks if a consumer wants to transfer and switch to them for renewal. so the next time your domain is up for renewal, check the notices closely and compare rates to see which registrar offers the best deal for you. in the newsroom, lynda baquero, news 4 new york. >> well, there was a lot of screaming going on in my house last night. i don't know about yours. my family was going nuts after the mets were popping the champagne.
if we'd had any in the house -- >> been a while. not since i had champagne, but the mets. here's john chandler, talking about the mets getting a division title. hasn't happened since 2006. >> good morning, everybody. i know it's a good morning for all you mets fans. july 23rd, the mets fielded the second worst lineup in the major league statistically. today they wake up nl east champs. the magical ride is only getting started, folks. in cincinnati, the mets swung away early and often, intent on wrapping up the nl east last night. first inning, duda sends it toward the ohio river. a grand slam ands mets are up 4-0. think it was safe to start moving that champagne into the clubhouse? david wright thought so. the three-run homer gave them a 10-2 lead over the reds. i think that's a fitting cap on the mets' clincher. the captain fought so hard through injuries to get back into this lineup this year. he's the only one left from 2006, the last time the mets won
ninth inning, familia on the mound. he says let's get this celebration started. the mets are nl east champs for the first time since 2006. and in the clubhouse, after all that celebrating, terry collins was right in the mix as champagne sprayed. at 66, the manager headed for the playoffs for the first time as a skipper. >> we talked about being patient. the ownership was patient. sandy was patient. hopefully everybody enjoys this for a while. >> people say a lot of things. last thing i ever want to do is not be out there with these teammates. you know, i've done everything i can to stay healthy to be here with these guys. it's pretty surreal. >> unbelievable. harvey told his manager he wanted no innings limit yesterday. the yankees are getting closer,
white sox 1-0 in the sixth. chase headley sends in the tying run. in the sixth, a-rod grounds a double down the line into left. then in that mix, a bull pen that worked a perfect seventh, eighth, and ninth. the yanks trim their magic number down to four with a 2-1 win. nfl sunday today. the jets looking for their first three-game win streak since 2011. they'll host the eagles this amp at metlife. on the college grid, rutgers beat kansas to move their record to 2-2. at the tour championship, jordan spieth chasing that $10 million fedex cup bonus. birdied to move within two of the leader. on 18, spieth took the lead, finishing with a birdie. jordan spieth going to the lead in the final round. here is a look at your leaderboard heading into today's final round.
advantage over henrik stenson. coverage begins here this afternoon. for "today in new york," i'm john chandler. pilots flying pope francis from new york to philadelphia might have felt a little bit of pressure yesterday. that's because the holy father swung by the cockpit. that tickles pat. the american airlines pilot joked about auto pilot. when pope francis asked about landing, the pilot quickly reassured him, saying that was manual. >> sounded like he said pardon me. not sure, but that was delightful. pope francis flew to jfk on a marine corps helicopter normally used by the president. en route, he made a special request.
he wanted to see ellis island. so they made a detour. we were wondering why it was taking the flight longer than normal. now we know why. he wanted to see ellis island and the statue of liberty. you're in new york, you've got to see those landmarks. our top of the rock camera caught that fly by. gus and i were talking about that yesterday. cardinal dolan who was on board with the plane said pope francis got very emotional. of course, he's made immigration a priority in his pontifficate. his grandparents were immigrants from buenos aires in 1929. >> it's like the saying goes, if the pope asks for once more around the park, you go twice. up next, we'll have reaction to the pope's address as he spoke on immigration and religious freedom. and just one day after central park was packed for the pope, another big event brought in the crowds. we'll show you the big names who took the stage. and could rain be in the forecast? i think it could. we'll tell you when coming up in
6:30 on a sunday morning. a live look at ben franklin plaza there. we're live in philadelphia for the final day of the pope's visit to the u.s. we'll be checking in with ray villeda in a moment. >> so glad you've chosen to join us. we know you have a lot of other onyxes on options on this sunday morning, but you're with us. we so appreciate it. and dave price is in this morning. i don't think you had as much choice. >> i'm glad to be here nonetheless. >> we could tell. >> nice to see you, pat and gus. nice to be with you this morning, everyone. we are going to start this morning under mostly fair skies.
it's 57 degrees. coolthe out there. couple of clouds dancing with the sunshine today, but it should be a very pleasant day ahead. let's lay it all out so you can make your plans. a cool and refreshing start as you head up to places like duchess county. you're in the low 40s this morning. even cooler spots at points in connecticut. 65 under partly sunny skies at noon. as we wrap up the day and start thinking about the workweek at 6:00 tonight, it will be 68 degrees. 73 the high. we have some rain in the forecast. at least an increasing chance of that as we head monday into tuesday. we'll tell you all about it coming up in a full forecast in minutes. in the meantime, pat and gus, back to both of you. >> all right, dave. thank you. the pope beginning day two of his philadelphia tour. it's all going to happen in a few hours. >> his final day in the united states will include a mass that's expected to draw over a million people to the city of brotherly love. >> rey villeda continuing our coverage from philadelphia. good morning.
in the last hour, we saw security sweeping ben franklin parkway because it is here that his mass will take place in front of the museum of art, just down the parkway from where i'm standing. it's hours ahead from that mass starting, and we're already seeing folks starting to trickle in. keep in mind that mass doesn't start until 4:00 this afternoon. an interesting note that we've learned is that not as many folks as they were expecting showed up to the festival of families last night, but still we're told everything ran smoothly. now, let's talk more about what we th're expecting to see today and what we've seen yesterday as well. ben franklin parkway has basically become the main route for the pope. this is where everyone has been able to get a good glimpse of the pope in the pope mobile, that jeep, as well as the fiat we've grown to become accustomed to. of course, to get to the parkway, you have to go through security check points. there's a metal detector. they're screening bags.
even when we left the hotel here, we had to be screened. the camera we're using was sniffed with a bomb-sniffing dog. despite the security, everyone was thrilled to be here and to get a glimpse of him. a lot of them drove from all over the country. >> once in a lifetime experience, definitely. this is all so crazy. it's like shock overload. but it's really exciting, you know. you're never going to get this again. >> reporter: it's interesting. they were able to get their feelings out into a sentence. some folks i spoke to moments after they got to see the pope couldn't even put into words how they were feeling. they were just so stunned that they were that up close and able to see him as he drove by. that mass, we're told, is afternoon. as you mentioned, expected to draw over a million people here on ben franklin parkway. we're live in centre city, philadelphia, this morning. i'm ray villeda, "today in new york." >> thank you very much. here at home, the faithful
this recent papal visit. >> sheldon dutes is continuing our team coverage from st. patrick's cathedral. >> reporter: the first mass here at st. patrick's cathedral starts at 7:00 a.m. there are a handful of early risers who have already started to trickle into the cathedral. as you can imagine, and there's a lot of pride and a sense of allure about this church after pope francis kicked off his brief, very eventful new york visit here. it was on thursday evening that pope francis gathered with other religious dignitaries here at st. patrick's cathedral for an evening prayer service. it was during that prayer service that the holy father thanked american nuns for their strength and their commitment to service after a vatican crackdown. the highlight of this trip, some say, was the mass at madison square garden on friday night. about 18,000 people filled the garden for a mass that was
during his homily, he reminded residents of big cities across our country to look after the disenfranchised members of their communities and to see what they could do to help them and look after them. so many people who attended that mass at the garden say they felt moved by the pope's message. and pat and gus, as catholics prepare to worship this morning, it will be interesting to see how the pastors of their home churches incorporate the spirit of pope francis into their sermons and homilies throughout the day today. that's the latest here at st. patrick's cathedral. sheldon dutes, "today in new york." >> sheldon rounding out our team coverage there. religious freedom and immigration. two of pope francis' key issues we heard about during his trip to america. >> yesterday he was in philadelphia where the nation's founding fathers declared their freedom from british rule, but he kind of slipped off the script a little bit, talked about god, family, and love. reaction now from telemundo 47.
in the birthplace of this nation. pope francis spoke directly to millions of latino immigrants. he told them not to lose hope in the face of adversity and to be proud of their cultures. for some, his words of encouragement are a breath of fresh air. the pope has made immigration a central topic on his first vits sit to the united states. since his arrival, he spoke of his immigrant roots. today he reminded americans once again of the founding principles of this nation. >> he just gave us courage. and he told us to show our culture and our cultural roots, the one each immigrant brings from their own native country. but at the same time, the second important thing that he told us is to respect the society. >> reporter: and tonight some
immigrants told us that they hope the pope's message will sway the hearts and minds of those in congress that oppose immigration reform. pablo gutierrez, nbc 4, new york. >> and we talked about the fact, gus, that the pope went totally off script from what his prepared remarks were last night when he talked at that festival of families. we want to share a moment after this with you. it was a little boy. that little boy just stole the show with his angelic voice. then he whispered in the ear of mark wahlberg, the actor, that he loved the movie "ted." that little boy is bobby hill. he's an aspiring op e ing ing opera singer. clearly the pope loved his
performance. he just enjoyed that moment. touching the hand. >> beautiful voice. just another one of those real genuine connections with the pope we've been seeing here. coming up on this sunday morning, a warning for anyone who uses car-sharing services. plus, the i-team investigates a rogue driver accused of taking a young woman on a terrifying ride. and storm team 4's dave price returns with a check of
nice to see you, gus. heinz 57. that's the temperature outside right now. we've all been anticipating the drop. it's finally here. a crisp morning outside, everyone. as we take a look at one of our many sky cam shots around the city. our area seeing fair skies right now. that temperature of 57. as we head down to philadelphia, where the pope is wrapping up his festivities, it's 60 degrees but under mostly cloudy conditions. philadelphia was worried about rain. i don't think they're going to get any today. as far as what we can expect through the day, the headlines look like this. another beauty. it's going to be a great day today. nice way to wrap up the workweek. the clouds are coming though. end of the day today into the overnight tonight, that's when we'll begin to see that transition. how about the rain? the likelihood is there that we will see some monday night into tuesday. we're going to watch it and talk about the specific timing in just a minute. in the meantime, let's pop up the numbers.
42 in poughkeepsie. 39 in danbury. couple of cool spots out to the west in sussex. everyone else pretty much in the upper 40s as you head to white plains, to upper 50s here in new york. the live radar sweep right now stretches all the way around without picking up any moisture that's going to be falling to the ground. storm tracker, as we widen the picture, shows a couple things. i don't know if you can see it. a little bit of moisture well to the south in the atlantic. then more moisture coming in from the west. those are two different systems that may provide us with some precipitation monday into tuesday. the future tracker looks like this. right now relatively clear, but we do begin to cloud on up. we see some of that atlantic moisture trying to make its way towards us. slight possibility, 30% that it will do so. let's say monday evening. more likely, though, we get that rain from the west into tuesday. that's what we're looking at in
on monday, tuesday, potential for shower activity. as far as today goes, 73 should be the high. sunrise comes up in just about five minutes. sunset at 6:45 tonight. northeast winds 5 to 10 miles per hour. very pleasant. temps around the area relatively uniform. shelter island all the way west to wantage. tonight, cool temps once again. we're going to see clouds begin to roll in. we have a really neat event. if you are a stargazer or mildly interested in rare occurrences, 1982 is the last time it happened. 2033 is the next time. it is a combination of a super moon and a lunar eclipse. best time to watch is 10:00 to 11:00. here's your seven-day forecast. wednesday, a nice day. thursday and friday, a little cooler. saturday, a little more cloud cover potentially. overnight temperatures in the 50s.

>> he asked if i was islamic. i told him no. he started listing all the reasons why i needed to convert. >> reporter: still, she played along as her driver zipped up the fdr to her upper east side apartment, but then panic set in. >> he was supposed to exit at 96th street. then he blew right past the exit. i asked him, where are you going? you missed the exit. he goes, no, no, no, don't worry about it, i know where we're going. >>. >> reporter: the man drove to queens, driving aimlessly around a neighborhood alyssa was not familiar with. >> absolute panic. i was so terrified. the conversation turned into i need an arranged marriage. he told me his family in syria could arrange for it. >> reporter: faust thought about using her phone, but the driver wouldn't allow for it. >> my phone was ringing. he's like, why is your phone rings? he started getting angry. >> reporter: when she saw the sign for manhattan, she pleaded with the driver to take the bridge and take her home.
he did, but her troubles didn't end there. faust said she sought help but police wouldn't take her report. >> they started to do a person search. we couldn't pull anything up. >> reporter: that's because according to her lyft receipt, all she had was her driver's first name and his picture but nothing else. no last name, no tlc number, no license plate number. initially, police did not take a report, but once the i-team contacted them, the nypd began an investigation, saying, quote, detectives are waiting for a subpoena to identify the driver and to speak to him, unquote. the tlc, which regulates all cap drivers in new york city, said they did not learn about this incident from lyft but from the i-team. the commissioner says if passengers don't report this to the tlc, those drivers often remain on the road. >> we're the only people that can suspend or revoke a driver's license. if an app kicks a driver off their platform, the driver can easily join another platform. so they will still interact with passengers. >> reporter: tlc rules were
recently strengthened to prevent exactly what happened in alyssa's case by requiring receipts to include the vehicle license number, the driver's for hire license number, and the 311 complaint number. >> with that information, we can very easily track down a trip and take action against the driver when necessary. >> reporter: but because of a grace period, not all companies are in compliance. a spokesman for lyft said they removed the driver from their service, and they're working to comply with new tlc requirements. the i-team surveyed the biggest car service companies based on fleet size, and we found only six companies were compliant with tlc rules. meanwhile, alyssa can't stop thinking about how this could have ended very differently. >> that's absolutely crazy and so terrifying. where could he have been taking me? what were his plans? what was he going to do with me? >> reporter: news 4 new york. >> and if you have something you
you know the song. that means it's time to ask produce pete. this morning, everybody loves broccoli, right? when you get a head of broccoli, you see the tiny leaves. i thought that was all the leaves broccoli had. pete says, no, no, no. this is called brocco-leaf. >> years ago, there was no broccoli crowns. there was broccoli with the stocks. mom used to make it, but you all know about my childhood. we didn't have much money, so she cooked everything. she'd take a potato peeler, scrape the stump. but there were always leaves. she would make broccoli salad and cook the leaves. nobody thought to take these leaves and use them. what happened was the farmers
used to -- when the broccoli grows, this is the leaves that surround them. so the farmers, what they used to do was take those leaves after they took the broccoli out, chop them up, put them back into the soil, and replenish the soil and make the soil really rich. well, they thought, if it makes the soil rich, it could probably make us rich, right? so what they did was -- they're starting to do this. this is a new item. you're going to see it in the stars probably late october, early november. it comes either in bunches like this or now they did it even simple. they cleaned it for you and put it in this bag. it is 100% organic too. so what they do is -- you have to remember, especially with this, full of vitamin a and c. and listen, two leaves like this give you about 30% of the calcium requirements you need during the day. it's really good. this is like kale. i love kale.
>> we love kale. >> not as harsh. >> what about collard greens. >> all betty did today was she made this by putting a little -- it has to me not the bitterness that broccoli rob has. it has like a sugar snap pea taste to it a little bit. that's what i think when i cook it. one thing about this, when you cook like swiss chard, when you cook spinach, a lot of water in the pan. not with this. no water whatsoever. itls's really easy. it lasts for quite a while. it lasts longer than kale. plus, it's got, like i said before, it's loaded with vi atamins. you can do a lot of things with this. prepare this in a stir fry. you can actually take this -- now, we talked about making kale drinks. where you take strawberries. get your daily requirements by
you can use this too, and it doesn't give you that harshness that kale gives you. >> it's very chewy. it's good. >> you're going to see it in the stores. it's out there. it's going to be available. it's something a little different. it's a new type of vegetable. like i said, it's coming out. you'll see it in most of the stores probably around -- in the beginning of november. >> just in time for thanksgiving. >> just in time for thanksgiving. it's a little bit of a different thing. it's very versatile. so it's called brocco-leaf. i like to bring you new items every once in a while. i really like it. >> how original. the name is so original. >> it's like me, it's original. >> all right, pete. thank you. you can send your questions to pete about brocco-leaf or anything else at producepete.com. you can also find him on facebook and he's a twitter fa fanatic as well. gus? >> all right, pat. thank you. now it's time for today's wednesday's child. we're talking about actual children. a brother and sister who are are

we are going to see some rain in the forecast. right now numbers look like this. 48 degrees in white plains. bridgeport checks in at 50. 53 in islip. farmingdale has the same number. 42 degrees in poughkeepsie. and 41 in danbury. if you're just waking up there right now, you were in the 30s before those eyes opened this morning. but we were watching it. live radar picture right now sweeps around the region. there's really not a lot going on. what's just out of picture range, though, is moisture. moisture to the south and east in the atlantic. another system, which is in the west working its way. both are potential rainmakers for us. i think more likely we'll get a little bit of a spritz, if you will, out of this system from the west. the future tracker, look at the cloud cover begin to encroach. see some scattered shower activity. localized and widely scattered, popping up potentially monday night.
batch rolling in late monday night into tuesday. i think there's a higher percentage we'll see measurable precipitation out of that. for today, 73 degrees. as we head out to westfield, 73. down at the shore, 72 degrees. sunset at 6:45. clouds begin to roll in. mostly cloudy tonight. 64, where we bottom out. 52 in poughkeepsie. 57 in morristown. but we have this super moon tonight. now, if you've never seen it, that makes sense because the last time it was here was 1982. the moon is at its closest point to the earth. it's going to appear 14% larger and 33% brighter. then we have an eclipse. so the earth is going to block the moon. the moon is going to be in its shadow. then this sunlight, which is reflected through the earth's at
atmosphere is going to make the moon seem red. it's really cool if you can see it. pram prime viewing, 10:11 to 11:00 tonight. lots of clouds along the east coast. we're going to see how much cloud cover we have tonight. we'll track it through the day. our cameras will be zoomed at the sky for you. as we head into the workweek, monday monday, possibility of a shower. tuesday, more of a chance of some precipitation. then wednesday, thursday, friday, very pleasant. a mix of sun and clouds. same holds true for saturday. you can stay up to date with the news 4 new york app. tap the news 4 logo in the corner and select the weather tab. you can see the forecast. you can work with interactive radar. and you can learn how to submit your own weather video. the news 4 new york app for iphone is available in the app store. we'll update you on the weather all morning long. in the meantime, back to you at the desk.

about how a baby sea otter is wlerning to breathe again after raging wildfires left her battling asthma. and will she sink or swim? it's a gus rosendale sort of analogy you love. our own dylan dreier gives synchronized swimming a try. it's all going down in times square. we're getting in the deep end when we get started on a sunday morning. >> well, my overall impression of that was when i heard you mention the apocalypse was it should be higher up in the tease. jeff, thank you. >> all right then. >> dave is in for a raft today. no apocalypse. that moon should be interesting to see. >> that's mythic and lore. when you see the blood moon, it is an ominous sign. but we'll talk more about the super moon and the lunar eclipse in a minute. as we walk over to the weather wall, forget the apocalypse. it's the loveliest of days.
plenty of sunshine. much to celebrate and be thankful for. that's what i say. 57 degrees under mostly sunny skies right now. let's take a look at the headlines. another winner of a day. every time we think we may have some rain rolling in, we may have a change in the weather, which is not going to be so nice, even if it's needed, it doesn't happen. but we have eked out another winner. i think we are finally going to see those changes we've been talking about. from not only the east but the west. we'll talk about that when we get to the interactive maps. will we get the rain? question mark. i think we have about a 30%, 40% chance of seeing some measurable rain roll through the area. it is going to be localized, but we'll talk about where it's most likely to be after we take a look at our current conditions. 57, we talked about, the number now in central park. 54 in morristown.
look at that, 42 degrees in poughkeepsie. it was in the 30s in danbury. now you're at 41. 49 in west hampton. the radar picture runs the gamut. 360 degrees around and does not pick up any moisture at this point. that will most likely change over the next 48 hours or so. two things to think about. two things to think about. number one, a little batch of atlantic moisture well to the south here. number two, another system pushing in from the west. so two chances to get a little bit of rain that we so desperately need. we do. we have reservoirs which are significantly down and moderate drought conditions throughout the region. so let's put future tracker in motion. there's that first batch rolling through on monday, but it's widely scattered. fair amount of cloud cover but not a lot of rain. more likely scenario, heavier rain rolls in from the west as we head monday night into tuesday. so for today, go out and celebrate and enjoy this terrific day. terrific to wrap up the weekend.
a light northeast breeze 5 to 10 miles per hour. 73 in the city. relatively uniform around the region certainly. as we widen out the picture, things don't change much. 73 in duchess county. 71 in shelter island. 70 in wantage. tonight, we're going to see those clouds roll in we . we talked about that blood moon and lunar eclipse. it's not going to be optimal for viewing, but we should get something. best time probably between 10:00 and 11:00 tonight. our cameras are going to be on it. the seven-day forecast, there it is. we cloud up tonight. best chance of showers tomorrow afternoon time. it increases in likelihood during the overnight monday night into tuesday. wednesday we're dry again. thursday we're in the 60s as highs. saturday looks good as we wrap up the workweek and head into another weekend. listen, you can stay up top date with the news 4 new york app and

it toward the ohio river. a grand slam ands mets are up 4-0. think it was safe to start moving that champagne into the clubhouse? david wright thought so. the three-run homer gave them a 10-2 lead over the reds. i think that's a fitting cap on the mets' clincher. the captain fought so hard through injuries to get back into this lineup this year. he's the only one left from 2006, the last time the mets won the division. ninth inning, familia on the mound. he says let's get this celebration started. the mets are nl east champs for the first time since 2006. and in the clubhouse, after all that celebrating, terry collins was right in the mix as champagne sprayed. at 66, the manager headed for the playoffs for the first time as a skipper. >> we talked about being patient. the ownership was patient. sandy was patient. hopefully everybody enjoys this for a while. >> people say a lot of things. last thing i ever want to do is not be out there with these teammates. you know, i've done everything i can to stay healthy to be here
with these guys. it's pretty surreal. >> unbelievable. harvey told his manager he wanted no innings limit yesterday. the yankees are getting closer, trailing john danks and the white sox 1-0 in the sixth. chase headley sends in the tying run with this double to left center. alex rodriguez called this recipe on saturday perfect for success. a good start from adam warren. timely hitting here in the sixth as a-rod grounds a double down the line into left. then in that mix, a bull pen that worked a perfect seventh, eighth, and ninth. the yanks trim their magic nursmber down to four with a 2-1 win. nfl sunday today. the jets looking for their first three-game win streak since 2011. they'll host the eagles this amp at metlife. on the college grid, rutgers beat kansas to move their record to 2-2. at the tour championship, jordan spieth chasing that $10 million fedex cup bonus.

and we want to welcome you back on this sunday morning. this sunday being the final day of pope prancis' visit to the united states. it's going to be a busy one. beginning in just a couple hours. joining us now to talk about that and the impact of what we've seen so far as the pope has visited this country are associate professor of kain university. a professor of history at st. francis college. we welcome you all to studio 3c this morning. what a week it has been. >> sure, it certainly has.
>> as the pope makes his trip into philadelphia, we sawithe festival of families last night. we'll talk about that in a minute. but he's about to talk to the biods bishops. i think this is probab a critical turning point where we wonder if the message that's resonated with so many people here in e u.s., it's up to these men to carry this forward in the church. how do they do that, brother? >> really, the challenge ism exactly to keep that spirit alive. if you look at all the pope's speeches and appearances he's made, he's really bringing a ssage of hope, of peace, and of reconciliation to a world sorely in need of it. i was at the mass at msg just the other day. i was so struck with the reverence of 25,000 people bre ought to silence or nearly so. never in madison square garden hi,ory has that maybe been the case. they call him the people's pope, but he's really a pope of hope. that's his message.
hope fore better world andt more peaceful one and a more -- you know,tantagonisms are reconciled between people and countries. >> exactly. d he's a pastor. thatugs what he does best, is work with the people, which is the message he's trying to spread. you make a very good point about polarization. one of the issues he talked about was the issue of ignhiing the poor, the faceless, the nameless, especially in a big city like this. he made that point at madison square garden. >> he gave us almost a theology of the city, to find christ in all of those people whose nhtes we don't know and will never know, but christ is alive in them as well. we are as divided a nation as divided a catholic church as any of us have ever seen. he comes right into the united states, and he doesn't get pulled into some of the issues that maybe some of the american into. he spoke about not demonizing
the other person with whom you disagree. he said at ground zero and he said in independence hall yesterday, true religious freedom is when many faiths and many people can dialogue without fighting each other. what did this pope do this week? he took the war out of the culture wars. >> i couldn't agree with you more. the word dialogue we heard repeated again and again. dialogue and peace. there was also some criticism. there was a big roar that went up in the u.n. general assembly when he talked about the role of women in the church, yet he stopped short of saying -- he s said he doesn't believe in e ordination of women in the ch anurch. sister, can you talk about the issue of the role of women in e church? he gave you such props. at the same time, a lot of people who had hope they might hear a broader message on that did not hear that. >> e we did not hear that yet. i'm convinced that the dialogue wis not over. and i think why i feel h itsul about at least what pope franci its is doing is there's a general openness.
ot just the catholic church or catholics or other christians. there are jews that go to rim, muslims that go visit him. i think thsee's hope there by the fact it's almost like the wesley movement of the methodist urch. john wesley talked about his wide world, my parish. i think pope francis sees the rld as his par h in the sense of he has responsibility for the entire world. hence the climate control idea, tho e changes and the poverty, the homeless, and those without sustenance. so i would say for the role of women, there are some s hools of thought within the theology of women. i'm not sure that's the answer to the problem, but that's a way to solve the problem of getting beyond where we are. there's a thought that what the church has done in the past, the church can still do.
around very strongly is phyllis zagano at hofstra university. this idea of what the church has one, the church can still do, leaves an opening that i'd like to see somebody like papa france francesco, who has the openness, to see what else women can do in terms of a leadership role, perhaps not yet ordinational, but the phrase what i said, phyllis zagano refers to women deacons in the church, the same way people would preside at eucharist. so there's openness there. i owine the hope in this papacy. i think a lot of people do. >> w and i hope it's going to move forward as opposed to backwards. >> well, obviously the eyes of the world were on this pope this week. and the ears of the world let's hope remain open. thank you all so much for joining us.
the last day of the pope's trip to the u.s. he heads back to rome about 12 hours from now. he leaves from philadelphia at 8:00 this evening. the camera zooming in there as we look at the altar and the preparations being made for the pope's mass in the city of brotherly love. >> and of course we'll bring you another report in our 8:00 hour. plus a check of the forecast and
> now on "today in new york," a million people expected in philadelphia tonight for the pope's final mass on his u.s. tour. we will have team coverage. plus, another story we're tracking. a stage collapse injures dozens in arizona. what investigators are now saying led to the disaster. and a sweet celebration. the mets clinching a division championship for the first time since, oh, a long time. it's been a while. i know the year was 2006. i was trying to think of something more relevant, like the last time i did something. but whatever. i was just a young child in 2006 when they clinched. >> absolutely. of course. good morning. i'm gus rosendale. >> and i'm pat battle, young child. >> dave price standing by in the storm team 4 weather center with a look at another beautiful day taking shape. >> it is going to be gorgeous. it's going to keep a smile on your face all day long. got a couple high clouds rollingng through. we have fair conditions out
there at this hour. temperatures inching up. i think we're going to gain a degree in this 8:00 hour. as we head through the rest of the day, here's what you can expect. we began the morning again with cool, refreshing conditions. 58 degrees. 65 by the time we head to the noontime hour. partly sunny skies. we'll get to 73 before w slip down once again and see pleasant conditions at 6:00 at just about 68 degrees. clouds roll in tonight. changes in the forecast. some rain potentially for us. much-needed rain that is. we'll take a look at he seven day in a little while. in the meantime, back to both of you at the desk. >> dave, thank you very much. we begin with that papal visit to philadelphia. thousands of people gathering in the city of brotherly love for the star-studded festival of music and prayer last night. >> something to see. and more to see today. ray villeda continuing our team coverage live from philadelphia. ray?
we're hearing more sirens again. a heavily guarded centre city, philadelphia, today. that's because a big public mass is expected to take place at 4:00 this afternoon. along with those sirens, we're also hearing a lot of folks. it's clear that anticipation is building on the streets. let me show you exactly what we're talking about this morning. folks started filing in as early as 6:00 a.m. into the area where the mass will be held on ben franklin parkway. it's in front of the museum of art. it's there at that same location where the festival of families took place last night. several musical acts took the stage, but it was a young boy booked last minute who won so many over. i'd have to say he stole the show and was the talk of the city. while the festival was a big event, not as many people attended as expected. for many, the big draw was seeing pope francis as he drove by. >> once in a lifetime experience definitely. this is all so crazy. it's shock overload.
you're never going to get this again. >> reporter: you're taking a live look at st. martin's chapel where the pope will make his first stop this morning. he's expected to get there at 9:15. you can see already a lot of folks are filing in. this will be a meeting with bishops in the area. he'll then head to a local jail, the biggest jail in this area to meet with inmates. that mass starts at 4:00. as we've been saying all morning long, a million people expected. we may pass that one million mark. i can tell you already a lot of folks are showing up for a mass that's not expected to start until later this afternoon. we're live in centre city, philadelphia. i'm ray villeda, "today in new york." >> ray, thank you very much. let's take a closer look at the pope's schedule today. first thing this morning, he's going to meet with bishops at st. martin's chapel. then a visit to the cu are, curran-fromhold correctional facility.
the world meeting of families. >> thank goodness that's a long flight. i hope that man gets a nap. bless his he rt. he has really, really not slowed down a bit on his whirlwind. well, the faithful are going to head to mass here at home today as the pope spends his final day in the united states. >> sheldon dutes is continuing our coverage with reaction to a historic visit that's turned out to be meaningful for so many people. sheldon? >> reporter: the church services here in the beautiful architecture, st. patrick's cathedral has been a draw for parishioners and visitors for a long time. now that pope francis has visited this cathedral, it's created a new allure. people have been heading to mass this morning with a little bit of pride, knowing that pope francis kicked off his visit to the united states with -- excuse me, his visit to new york with a trip to st. patrick's cathedral for evening of prayer.
for those folks who didn't even go to mass this morning, they still wanted to be here. they wanted to take pictures. because this is where the pope had stopped when he was here in the city. i spoke with a couple that was visiting from california. they landed here the night that the pope left. they talked about their excitement about the pope's trip to the united states. well, i think his spirit has meant a lot. i know he's had a lot of words to say to people, a lot of different things. i think more important than the words is the spirit. the spirit of love and the spirit of opening your hearts and trying to do a little bit more than we've done. in whatever way we're put on this earth to do it. >> reporter: pat, you've mentioned this, i've mentioned this. we all talked to catholics who have fallen away from the church for whatever reason. they feel reinvigorated, they feel inspired by pope francis. he has restored their faith in the catholic church. and it'll be interesting to see
local parishes and homilies throughout the day today. for now, we're live here at st. patrick's cathedral. sheldon dutes, "today in new york." >> for sure, sheldon. today and beyond. for much more on the pope's visit and a slide show of that visit, which includes some incredible pictures taken by our crews and our photographers and reporters and by our viewers here in new york, head to nbcnewyork.com. just check out the news 4 new york app. download it to your iphone. it is a free app. we'll have live coverage today from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on our cozi-tv stations, which you can find on your listings. >> absolutely. well, the long wait, particularly if you were born in flushing, queens, the mets are back to the playoffs. >> my family was celebrating last night too. yes, indeed. clinching the nl east division 2006.
tears of joy for the 2015 new york mets! >> familia struck out jay bruce to seal a mets win over the cincinnati reds. david wright, who was injured most of the season, capped the victory by crushing a three-run homer in the ninth inning. wright of course a key member of the 2006 team, but this one has special meaning. >> to be able to celebrate again with this organization, with this team, i've said it from day one, i bleed orange and blue. i truly mean that. i can't be more proud of this team, this organization, the city of new york, and the new york met fans for sure. >> for sure. well, for terry collins, this is his first trip to the playoffs as a manager. at the age of 66, he is the oldest skipper in baseball. >> all right. lots more to come still on "today in new york." after the pope, now we have more company. president obama coming to the city. what he plans to say on the podium at the united nations today. and the radar picture is dry. sunny skies for the end of the
back this morning with a very sad story. today counselors going to be on the campus of a new jersey high school that is reeling from a tragedy at a football game. a star athlete died after he was injured on the field. evan murray was playing quarterback for warren hills high school in washington township friday night. that's when evan murray took a
hit on the field. witnesses say he walked to the sidelines and then collapsed. he was taken by the ambulance to a hospital where he died. stunned friends, teammates, and others have left flowers and cards on the football field in his memory. murray was also a top baseball pitcher for his school. his baseball coach remembers him as a standout on and off the field. >> there's a lot of things i'm going to remember about evan, mostly his leadership and just the young gentleman that he was. not just an athlete but the person he was. it was more important than the athlete he was. >> governor chris christie tweeted about evan. on behalf of all the people of new jersey, mary pat and i send our heartfelt sympathy to family of evan muir lay. well, at least a dozen people were hurt in a stampede at a summer concert in arizona. police in tempe say fans stormed the stage during the festival called summer ends.
this was last night. several concert goers were rushed to the hospital. at least two of them are in critical condition this morning. police investigating what prompted those people to rush that stage like that. well, if you thought security was going to ease up after pope francis left town, think again. >> that is because the president is in town today for the u.n. general assembly. president obama taking his turn at the podium, addressing other world leaders on the final day of the u.n. summit. he's expected to propose ways to address climate change and eradicate extreme poverty. as p mentioned, a lot of security. we have a full list of street closures on our website at nbcnewyork.com. well, at least it's going to be a nice day if you have to walk instead of drive all over town. dave price is here with the weather forecast that is just outstanding. >> it has made everything easier. can you imagine the papal visit, the general assembly beginning with rainy weather or issues which are complicating a commute in addition to all of the road closures and changes? would have been much different.
we have been lucky and we continue to be. let's go outside, take a look and see what's happening at this very hour. 58 degrees. we've got sunny skies here. we have live crews in philadelphia as well covering the papal visit there. the temperature in philadelphia right now, 61 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. little bit of a variation because you have additional cloud cover to the south. for us, sunday is sunday. lots of sunshine today, and we like it that way. terrific way to wrap up the workweek. but we do see some changes approaching not only from the east off the atlantic but coming in from the west as well, a separate system. the big question on everybody's mind, will we get the rain? the lovely weather has been terrific to have, but we know there's a necessity for the reservoirs reservoirs, for the drought conditions to get some additional rain, for agriculture as well. we'll answer that question in a moment. in the meantime, let's begin by taking a temperature tour. 58 right here in the city.
up by a degree in montauk. down by about four in morristown. 48 in sussex. danbury, you woke up this morning to 39 degrees during the 5:00 a.m. hour. everyone will warm up rather nicely today. this is the live radar picture circulating around 360 degrees. we don't pick up any moisture right now. but that is going to change. keep in mind you see a couple things. a little bit of cloud cover out here just to the south of that. there's some rain. not going to make it to philadelphia today. it's going to stay dry there. it's trying to work its way up. don't know if it will get there. if it does, we'll call it about a 30% chance of a shower. monday post noon. another system rolling in from the west. maybe a 40% chance of showers as we head into tuesday. monday night into tuesday. we'll put future tracker in motion. you can see that first batch
the west. we'll continue to watch that and track it all day today and tonight as well when we see you during the evening hours. 73 today. winds out of the northeast 5 to 10. 6:45 is when we see sunset. temperatures relatively uniform. 70 in wantage. we'll get to 71 in shelter island. mostly cloudy want to. again, it's going to complicate seeing the super moon and the lunar eclipse. cloud cover could be relatively significant, but we'll take a look at it. the sun, of course, is going to send light through the earth's at atmosphere. it's going to reflect a little red on the moon. that's what we call the blood moon. best viewing, 10:00 to 11:00 or so tonight. our cameras will be on the sky for you. there is your seven-day forecast. monday and tuesday we talked about the rain possibility. then wednesday, thursday, friday we clear on out. temperatures drop. it will feel very, very pleasant. and saturday looks good too. if you want to stay up to date, the easiest way is with our news 4 new york app. tap the news 4 logo in the

founded in germany but celebrated across the world now. oktoberfest we're talking about. here to show us some of the best and the worst, i'm sorry, of the festival is jeremy shaler. legendary store up in new york. on 86th street. you guys have just expanded. a sausage bar. >> it's the first time we did an off chute. it's actually a sausage bar using our traditional sausages, but you can have all these upscale toppings. >> i imagine there's a chance to get a beer there. >> there is. >> just checking. >> absolutely. >> oktoberfest comes around, what are some of your favorites you brought today?
german-style sausages. this is a typical bavarian. this is a country style sausage. then a bratwurst. >> what makes it authentic? the flavor? >> it's the flavor. my grandfather brought these recipes over from germany. we have never changed a thing in the 78 years we've been opened. >> if it ain't broke, don't fix it. >> absolutely not. >> and you make this all at your facility there. >> yeah, we make it all at our manufacturing plant in queens. >> okay. all right. very good. how do you cook it? you buy it at the store. i tend to overcook it a little bit. >> this is super simple. we do a lot of the work for you. they're all precooked. >> oh, really? okay. so just heat them up. what's the key? >> i like to boil them first a little bit. keeps a little moisture in there. then put them on a pan and get some browning. >> how long do you boil them for? >> just until the water starts to simmer. put them on a pan.
start to get them a little brown, and they're ready to go. >> in terms of side dishes, i'm a potato pancake guy. what are some of your favorites? >> pretzels is really, really oktoberfest oktoberfest. you have to have the good mustard. we do a dusseldorf style mustard mustard. it's got some horseradish with a little kick. >> some people like to do the sour cream thing. this is divided families. so you have that. then this looks like -- that's the potato salad. oh, my goodness. >> very, very important. >> you appear to have meat wrapped in meat. maybe another layer of meat. i don't know what it is, but i want to have it when we're done here. >> this is a pork knuckle. it's very, very crispy. it's amazing. some crackling. great bite. >> and roast chicken. i never think of chicken.
a lot of people are eating roast chicken. >> sauerkraut. particular kind you like? >> this is like a probiotic sour sauerkraut sauerkraut. probably the healthiest thing on the table. >> the table cloth is. the sauerkraut is a close second. >> what's big these days? >> these are all brought from germany. we have them all at our store on 86th street. we have a munich specialty. this is an organic beer. and this one is the oldest brewery in the world. and this is a nice beer which i'd like to pour right now. >> fair enough. and in terms of when you're talking about oktoberfest, before we go, what is the tradition? what's the celebration all about, besides good food and
>> in 1810, king ludwig got married. it was his wedding celebration that started the entire event. now it's 205 years it's been a celebration. >> that's a good party. thank you for coming in. >> absolutely. >> appreciate your time. "today in new york" continues right after this. a last check of your seven-day
we were just talking oktoberfest. not a bad day to sit outside in a beer garden. or any garden. >> or not even to sit at all. get out and get some exercise today. it's going to be beautiful out there. we're tracking a lot in the weather center. let's go to the seven-day forecast and talk about it. we have the sunshine today, but we have some clouds moving in and the potential for some rain. then we have some lunar eclipse, right. we have the super moon, which we're watching for tonight. cloud cover may play a role in that. so a really busy day today. we'll update you again when we see you a little later this morning. then tonight. but we expect some shower activity monday and tuesday potentially after the noon hour monday and tuesday more likely. then cool temperatures and nice stuff as we head to the midweek and beyond. >> more typical fall weather than we've been experiencing. >> yes, very true. much.
>> desperately. the reservoirs will be emptying quickly. thank you very much, dave. we appreciate it. and as we leave you here, we're going to see you back here at 10:00 this morning. a live look there inside st. martin's chapel in philadelphia, where in just about half an hour, 45 minutes, pope francis will address the bishop there is in philadelphia as he begins the first day of his last day in philadelphia. have a good one. sit tight for "open house nyc." >> followed by "weekend today." al penthouse in the sky that was once home to william randolph hearst. and a famed interior designer howard slatkin takes us on an intimate tour of his magnificent fifth avenue apartment. plus we visit the stylish home of sana rezwan sait, with an mix make of curated treasures. but first, we're stopping by the home of one of the most influential and cutting-edge designers in the world. i always like painting this notion of just doing one plain or one wall, because it really then, again, pops out, and it makes the space look more dimensional.
[music playing] welcome to "open house nyc." let's kick things off at the vibrant home of famed industrial designer karim rashid, one of the most prolific and influential voices working in design today. karim is as well known for his luminous style as he is for the impassioned belief that dynamic design can make you happier and in turn make the world a better place. hello. i'm karim rashid, and welcome to our home here in hell's kitchen in new york city. so this is a town home here in hell's kitchen. and i was looking for a space that had north and south light. and then the rest of the space is actually pretty well a blank canvas. i just painted it all white. and this for me is almost like
show off my products and my industrial design and my furniture design. and over here, we have the kitchen. and the kitchen was all doplne very, very simple and quite minimal, really. but i just added some accents. for example, there's kind of a lime-mirrored backsplash. and on the other side of the wall, i complemented it by painting just this one wall and emphasizing just one color in the space, pink. i always like painting this notion of just doing one plain or one wall, because it really then, again, pops out, and it makes the space look more dimensional. so this is the center of the home. the way i define that, actually, especially when you're living in an open space, is a carpet. for me, it's critical to have a carpet that really kind of pulls everybody together and pulls all the furniture together. a lot of my work is actually very soft, very rounded or amorphous. about 20 years ago, i used a word "blobject," actually, and that's really an object that
table, for example, has a very, very rounded, [inaudible] edge like this. you feel immediately at ease. so if i look at this huge piece of glazing here, i can see just a lot of green. so why don't we go out and take a look in the garden? for me, this is heaven in the way that i have this. and what i did is i divided the space, actually, into two seatings, two grouping areas. so when i have a lot of friends over, some gather in one area, and some gather in the other area. i'm not really one for umbrellas. i don't really believe in umbrellas, because a lot of times they tend to kind of block views. but fortunately in new york you can get away with that because you have so many buildings creating so many shadows. so here we are on the second floor of the townhouse. this is the master bedroom. and as you can see, there's wall-to-wall carpeting, which i'm a big advocate of. i love carpet, which is this kind of blobular, fluid kind of pattern. so really, the only thing i did in this space from the original architecture was i broke a wall here, and i skewed, angled this wall
skewed it back was so that i could allow a very tight entry for a walk-in closet. and then by making a nice sliding door here, i can just shut the whole closet off very nicely. this shelf is kind of interesting. it's two pieces of glass that has these kind of holes cut in it. and i just collect some objects that go way back from when i was a child. one of my favorite objects on this shelf, actually, is the sx70 camera, which i used to love. i mean, this was probably, when i was a teenager, the best thing that ever happened since the wheel, the invention of the wheel. a home to me is really a place where, when you're at home, you should have zero stress. so it should be the most comfortable, most relaxed, minimal, sensual, soft environment. anyway, thank you for seeing my home. there's so much more coming up on "open house." next, we're taking
